Alaska Children’s Therapy (ACT) is dedicated to helping
children reach their highest potential by striving for successful functioning
and independence in all areas of daily living. We use a play-based, family
centered approach to help each child succeed, one milestone at a time. ACT believes the early years in a child’s development are integral to optimizing
success throughout grade school years and beyond.
At Alaska Children’s Therapy, we provide specialized
pediatric occupational therapy services. Our goal is to work closely with
parents and caregivers by using a collaborative approach to support and
maximize each child’s development through important “occupations”. An
occupation is any activity that occupies your time and is meaningful and
purposeful. In a 6-month-old, this may look like banging a toy on the highchair.
When working closely with families, this may look like educating
parents how to use and select a certain toy to help their child learn how to
facilitate an appropriate grasp or improve hand-eye coordination.
My name is Paige Thorne, founder and primary practioner at Alaska Children’s Therapy. I am a
certified and licensed occupational therapist, as well as a new mom to a beautiful healthy baby
girl, a wife, a yoga enthusiast, and tennis player.
I am passionate about working closely with
parents and caregiversto help support their child’s unique learning styles to help each child
reach his or her highest potential.
